What if there are issues with quality?

We recommend that farmers and sellers proactively get their grain tested and upload the results on Zowasel Marketplace. In fact, we have created Zowasel Certified Crop to provide farmers with access to the top grain testing facilities across partner locations.

However, we can only pay for actual crops received by our buyers after quality checks confirmation, and invoice value received.

Why do Zowasel hold a reserve?

We hold a reserve for a simple reason: we want to protect ourselves in the event that the invoice is not paid in full. There are many reasons why invoices are not paid in full, including: Order errors, Breakage (i.e. not all crops were delivered in good condition), delivery errors and quality errors etc. By not paying for the invoice in full, receivables we protect ourselves. Bear in mind that Zowasel does not keep the reserve forever. We will rebate it, less the financing fee, as soon as the client pays the invoice in full.

What are Zowasel Financing solutions?

We offer invoice factoring or credit line financing that can be used to run your agribusiness against waiting for 30-90 days after delivery of crops to buyer.

Zowasel is an online marketplace for grains. We are fixing the cash-flow problems of agribusinesses by paying for the crops 24hrs after delivery rather than the typical 30-90 day waiting period.
